Franklin Foundation Hospital Encourages Back-to-School Sports Physicals

Franklin, LA – July 6, 2022, As the busy summer gets underway and you’re getting your child ready to return to school in the fall, now is an excellent time to schedule a health check-up. Franklin Foundation Hospital encourages parents to arrange an appointment with their child’s healthcare provider well before school starts.

“An annual physical exam and sports physical are especially important if your child or teen participates in a sport in or out of school,” said Mary Rios, Chief Nursing Officer at Franklin Foundation Hospital. “In addition to filling out a health history form, an exam will include blood pressure, height, weight, and vision check, and can reveal problems that are potentially lifesaving. Sports physicals help to ensure that athletes compete safely for their health and the health of others.

Providers associated with Franklin Foundation Medical Office Building and Baldwin Family Care are available to complete school physicals.

For the convenience of patients, Franklin Foundation Medical Office Building is located at 200 Medical Drive, Franklin, LA 70538, and Baldwin Family Care at 100 Live Oak Street, Baldwin, LA 70514. Please call us today at (337)828-5099 to schedule an appointment at our Medical Office Building or call (337)923-7040 to schedule an appointment at Baldwin Family Care.
